Mechanical Tests and Construction of Analytical Models of the Behavior of Materials Under Superplastic Conditions. Part II

Metallurgist. 2015. Vol. 59. P. 69-75.

Different test methods are described to determine the mechanical properties of materials in the superplastic state. The flow stress depends on strain and strain rate, the structural parameter of the materials, and temperature. The rheology and mechanics of superplastic deformation are discussed. The methods have been checked for reliability and produced good results in testing titanium alloys and constructing mathematical models as part of an order submitted by the company EADS (Airbus). The information given on the test methods and the subsequent approximation of materials’ mechanical properties is of considerable interest for making reliable predictions of the deformation of materials during shaping operations. © 2015 Springer Science+Business Media New York
